Back in the Saddle

Hey Yardbarker! I can't believe it is already August. Mom says time goes faster and faster as you get older. Eek. In between losing tons of money in a virtual stock game (Garmin and Electronic Arts tanked my portfolio) I've been busy easing my way back into some racing. I've been stretching myself a bit, trying some things I have never done before. On July 26 I competed in...

Chrissie Wellington Makes Ironman History

The Ironman World Champ and three time Ironman winner made it four titles today as she won Ironman Germany. As far as I know there is no triathlete who has won their first four Ironmans. Even more amazing is that Wellington posted the...

Riding with History

Hey Yarbarker! I've been enjoying my time here in Ventura. I'm taking some time to digest my back diagnosis and figure out how to cope with the reality of a body that has limitations. The doctor is not optimistic that I can return to competitive running or racing, but doctor's don't always have the final word. The great thing about triathlon is that there are three sports. I'll...

Training in Ventura

Hey Yarbarker! I'm currently in the Ventura/Santa Barbara, Calif. area to escape for a week or two to some of my favorite training haunts. I arrived in Ventura on Friday night and not a moment too soon. It was a rough week. I went in for another MRI last Monday to get some updated pictures of my back. The pictures were telling and the story not the type you want to write for...

Pain in the Back

Hey Yardbarker! I've updated my blog...check out the link for the continuation of the article below. It would be an understatement to say that I am frustrated. In 2003 I had the first hints of something not being 'right' with my back. At first it was a little twinge that showed up in my lower back. What has transpired since 2003 includes a never ending treadmill of trips to...
